The Party Place Has The Sweetest Rental Items For A Sweet 16

A Sweet Sixteen is a big deal in any girl’s life, and you want to make sure you pull it off just right! Make your daughter’s Sweet Sixteen the best it can be with rental items from The Party Place. Our extensive rental catalog features anything you could possibly need! Additionally, The Party Place can take some of the pressure off of preparing for a Sweet Sixteen with optional drop-off, pick up, set up, and take down services for your rental items.

What Do You Need For The Perfect Sweet 16?

The Party Place offers more than just high-quality rental times. We also offer top-notch party planning advice! If you want to make sure your daughter’s Sweet 16 is a big hit, make sure you have the following:


Every Sweet 16 party needs a fun theme that is unique to the birthday girl. Choose a theme that focuses around something special to your sweet 16-year-old. You might theme a sweet sixteen after her favorite sport or hobby such as cheerleading, dance, or band. If you’re not throwing a surprise party, ask for her input! What would mean the most to her? Picking out the theme first will help in planning and gathering the rest of the party supplies.


Invitations provide a precursor to the party festivities. They offer teasers of the party’s theme and activities and create a fun buzz surrounding the big event. These can be professionally done, store-bought or homemade, but the most important thing is the message inside.


Decorating for the party should revolve around the theme of the teenager. This really sets the ambiance and provides excitement and creativity. Balloons and banners create a festive atmosphere, and streamers along with confetti will turn any room into a party. A message board is a great way to capture special memories — use a poster board on the wall or a plain white tablecloth for guests to sign and leave a message for the birthday girl. You’re sure to find just the right décor touches in The Party Place’s rental catalog!

Party Favors

Provide your guests with party favors to help make your party memorable. Put together a gift bag full of fun teenage girl things like lip gloss, nail polish, and body spray. For the boy guests, favor ideas include a wallet, key chain, cologne or body spray, and personalized pens.


Create your own Sweet 16 playlist and include songs that will please everybody. Mix in fun songs from childhood, and songs that go along with the theme of your party. Music should be upbeat and create a fun atmosphere to keep people dancing and celebrating. Want to make sure that your guests all have a place to jam out to your music selection? Try The Party Place’s dance floor options.


Every party, especially with teenagers, should include food. The party can be extravagant with catered food service or more intimate with homemade appetizers. And don’t forget the birthday cake, the centerpiece of the celebration. To makes sure the food you serve at this Sweet Sixteen stays the right temperature all through the celebrations, make sure you have enough service ware.
